Daines Congratulates Andrew Obst on Naval Academy Appointment

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Steve Daines today congratulated Kalispell student Andrew Obst on his appointment to the United States Naval Academy.

Obst, a senior at Flathead High School in Kalispell, received a nomination to the Naval Academy from Daines last year.

“I’m proud of Andrew, a hardworking young leader, for his tremendous accomplishments and his recent appointment to the United States Naval Academy. This appointment serves as a testament to Andrew's dedication to his studies, volunteer work and extracurricular activities,” Daines stated. “Andrew will be an excellent addition to the Naval Academy and has the determination and drive to be a successful future leader for our state and country.”
